Science has been advancing at increasingly faster rates, and we humans can definitely tell. The world is full of all sorts of new scientific solutions to problems that have been troubling mankind for the past several decades. However, you can forget all of that because scientists have finally created a system that allows for moths to control cars by remote with their bodily odors.
If this sounds strange to you then that is understandable since it would seem like there exists no scientific value to this particular study. However, that would not be the case as researchers are hoping to use this technology to better understand how insects detect odors, especially odors that result from dangerous chemical leaks. Insects have an amazing sense of smell, and researchers are hoping to use an insect’s advanced olfactory systems to our advantage. Not only can insects help humans identify the source of dangerous chemical leaks, but they can also use their sense of smell to help humans detect drugs and perhaps bomb-detection as well.
Have you ever heard of a real life situation where insects assisted humans via their advanced ability to detect odors, or visual stimuli?
